I've had a quick look and would agree with you right now. This
appears to be a bug.
Generally speaking, there appears to be a lack of automated tests for
the cfi code. Getting it to work right for all combinations of bus
widths, etc. is a challenge. But automated tests would require one
device of each kind and I have no idea how to get all those.
